Product Description: Jeremiah Hunt was a respected classics professor at Harvard, happily married and the father of a lovely young daughter, Elizabeth. Then his life fell apart. One moment, Elizabeth was playing in her room; the next, she was gone without a trace. Within months, Hunt's obsessive search for her cost him his job and his wife. In a last, desperate attempt to discover Elizabeth's fate, he performs an arcane ritual that robs him of his eyesight in order to "see that which is unseen." Now, with his newfound gift, Hunt can see that which most mortals cannot: ghosts and other, more pernicious creatures of the night. An intuition he canít explain tells him that Elizabethís fate is connected with a malevolent spirit, one of the dark beings that refuse to give up their secrets despite his every effort to extract them.
With the help of his ghostly companions, Whisper and Scream, Hunt searches for clues to Elizabethís fateÖuntil he falls into a trap lain for him by a particularly cunning foe and winds up accused of committing a series of particularly brutal murders. What begins as a quest to save his daughter turns into a desperate search for truth and an all-consuming battle against an ageless, malevolent force that is using a fatherís love for his daughter to try and set itself free. If Hunt canít stop it, its terrible revenge will consume him, Elizabeth, and countless other innocents...
